James Edward Padgett

Mr. James Edward Padgett was born August 25, 1855, in Washington, D.C. and attended the Polytechnic Academy Institute at Newmarket, Virginia. In 1880 he was admitted to the bar in Washington, D.C., and thereafter he practiced law for 43 years until his death on March 17, 1923. During his student years, he became friendly with Professor Joseph Salyards, an instructor at the Academy who, after his death in 1885, wrote him many interesting messages. His wife, Helen, died about February 1914, and was the first to write him from the spirit world. Padgett never practiced the gift of mediumship as a means of earning money. He was dedicated wholly to the reception Of the great messages signed Jesus and his many disciples.

Dr. Leslie R. Stone wrote the following remarks about Mr. Padgett (Washington, D.C., May 1941):

"Mr. James E. Padgett was the instrument used by Jesus, and many spirits of the Celestial Heavens to receive their messages of spiritual truths that they are anxious should be made known to all mankind."

"Mr. Padgett was at one time Assistant District Attorney, Washington, D.C., an able lawyer with a high standing at the bar. He practiced law in the District of Columbia for more than 40 years. He was born August 25,1852, in Washington, D.C., and passed into the spirit world March 17, 1923."

"He obtained these authorative messages from many spirits of the Celestial Heavens from 1914 to 1923 who all corroborated that Jesus wrote through him by controlling his brain and hand."

"I was closely associated with Mr. Padgett from the time he started to receive the messages from the high spirits up to the time of his passing over into the spirit world."

"He was directed by Jesus and many Celestial spirits to pray with all the earnest sincere longings of his soul to the Father for the inflowing into his soul of the DIVINE LOVE that comes from God by His Holy Spirit, and was told that when he should obtain this love in sufficient abundance it would then change the quality of his brain into the necessary spiritual condition, and high quality, so that it would be possible for Jesus and the Celestial Spirits to make that close rapport with him, so that these high truths could be written through him."

"He took the advice of these high spirits, and prayed with all the earnest sincere longings of his soul to the Father for the Divine Love. After awhile, he obtained a sufficiency of this Love, and then, that close rapport that Jesus and the Celestial Spirits desired was made. Mr. Padgett was then successful in receiving communications that have never been communicated to a mortal since Jesus taught them on earth. After his early followers died, many of the great and most important truths that he taught, and which are the fundamental and basic truths of Christianity, have been lost to mankind."

"Jesus in one of his messages wrote - He will never come again in the flesh, yet, he has come again in the form of these revelations, through Mr. Padgett, which he taught on earth nearly two thousand years ago, and which he is still teaching in the spirit world and so are his followers."

"I was often present with Mr. Padgett in his room when he was receiving the messages from the Celestial Spirits. And I now want to say, with all the emphasis of my soul and being -- that I have a firm conviction in the genuineness of the same. And I know that if any man could have felt the wonderful love and power that Mr. Padgett and myself often spoke of and experienced, during the time the truths were being revealed, and when we discussed them, they would never have a doubt that Jesus and the Celestial Spirits were actually present and were the high spirits who have communicated."
